Description: Shiro of Japan has the reputation for providing patrons with an exceptional and authentic Japanese dining experience at affordable prices. The restaurant has more than a thirty year tradition of setting dining trends and providing exceptional service. Shiro of Japan was founded on the tradition of “true” Japanese hibachi steak house, a concept that introduced America to the cooking art form known as teppanyaki. In Japanese, teppan means an “iron plate” or a “steel sheet,” and yaki, “stir-fried food” or “stir-frying.” The teppanyaki and hibachi styles, come together to create a mouth-watering form of cuisine that continues to increase in popularity in the New York region and across the nation. Note, when making an online reservation please specify Hibachi or our main dining room.

“It's as good as your table side chef.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

I personally thought the food was quite good. However, the experience was lessened by the timing of the table side chef. His timing was off. One of my friends received his entree without the rice or vegetables being ready and it was served while others at our table were receiving appetizers. Was this a mix up of the waitress or the chef? His table side show was also a bit lacking compared to some of the other chefs we observed that night.

Would I give this restaurant another try? Yes, I chalk this up to an "off night."

“All around excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

This restaurant offers excellent Japanese food, sushi in particular, as well as hibachi. The salmon sushi pizza appetizer is amazing, the best around. The service is kind and attentive. This place is a good choice.
